*Illness* is a fangame by Atami (熱海), the creator of M∞N, Lost † Game, Musou Yuugi (夢想遊戯) and Made In Nightmare. Very much like the original Yume Nikki, its gameplay is centered on the exploration of a hikikomori's dreams. With seventeen effects and no endings, the game appears to be in its final version; and while there are a number of obvious bugs, it shows large graphical and structural improvement over the author's previous game from at least one year prior.

In core essence, it is not entirely an eccentric fangame. It's unique characteristics are the existence of several effects on the same maps and its hallmark zoomorphic panoramas.

Readme TranslationEdit

Title: * illness *

Nice to meet you. For those of you who took time to play my previous work, M∞N, it has been a while. While I did indeed do that short work, this time I did a serious game. Please enjoy * illness *.
